> Subject: FOSS4G Handbook some additional information
> (Hi Steven. Somehow I have problems to submit to conference-dev list at the moment - no confirmation mail is send.... Therefore could you please forward the mail to the conference-dev list with suggestions for the FOSS4G Handbook)
> Hello Conference list,
> as mentioned in the FOSS4G handbook I follow the process ...
> https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_Handbook#Editing_this_document
> Some parts in the handbook are very short or do not exist. I wrote the following suggestions already in Wiki syntax, so that they are easy to add if you like them.
> For discussion: I suggest to add some more information concerning photos, videos, recording, streaming, twitter and OSGeo-Live.
> == Press Releases ==
> add the link so people know where to submit news
> * http://www.osgeo.org/content/news/submit_news.html
> == Photos ==
> FOSS4G runs a flickr group called FOSS4G. You can provide images from FOSS4G conferences to this group. You can get a member of this group and share your photos.
> If you run the next FOSS4G conference you can ask to become an admin to change the configuration (ask Steven Feldmann f.e)
> * https://www.flickr.com/groups/foss4g/
> == Videos ==
> === Vimeo ===
> Foss4G runs a vimeo account. Where you can upload 20GB per week. Some conference where uploaded here. A full FOSS4G will produce more than 20GB of material..
> * the account will be passed every year after the conference to the next team
> * https://vimeo.com/foss4g
> * Make sure, that you add enough metadata when you publish your video
> There is a video landing page which refers to all videos from the last conferences.
> http://video.foss4g.org
> http://video.foss4g.org/foss4g2016/videos/index.html
> The code for the landing page is in OSGeo git. You can request access and build your own landing page.
> https://git.osgeo.org/gogs/foss4g/video.foss4g.org
> === TiB ===
> * TiB in Hannover is happy to publish our videos from FOSS4G. Peter Löwe is the contact person.
> == Recording & streaming ==
> FOSS4G conference should provide streaming of the talks and recording for later publishing.
> * Streaming enables people that could not come to the conference to join and even discuss on twitter (like Jeff did 2016).
> * Reocrding and publishing helps to spread the knowledge and awareness about OSGeo software
> == twitter ==
> * FOSS4G runs the account https://twitter.com/foss4g
> * the account will be passed every year after the conference to the next team
> * use #FOSS4G2017 in your tweets (maybe also #FOSS4G?????????????)
> * tweetdeck can be used to get a better overview about tweets, notifications, retweets... https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/
> * http://buffer.com/ (can be used to define tweets in advance and let them be posted at a defindes time)
> * NodeXL shows you the tweet statistics in a graph https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/
> OSGeo-Live
> ----------------
> (At the moment it says Live DVD in the handbook but nothing more... Title should be OSGeo-Live)
> == OSGeo-Live ==
> * http://live.osgeo.org
> * There is an OSGeo-Live team that provides every half a year an image of a collection of over 50 software projects and data and tutorials
> * the OSGeo-live team prepares a Version before FOSS4G that can be used at the conference in the workshops, at presentation notebooks & and can be give away to the delegates as bootable USB drives. This is a great opportunity to spread OSGeo software and promote OSGeo!
> * Also the OSGeo-Live team adds OSM data from the region where FOSS4G takes place (live 2016 data from Bonn was added)
> * Also the OSGeo-live team can add your FOSS4G-Logo or material on the image
> * the OSGeo-Live team will help you with USB and image - please contact them on the mailing list
> * Get information about the OSGeo-Live team here https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc
> * Workshops with OSGeo-Live: trainer can refer to  Workshop material here https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/wiki/Live_GIS_Workshop_Install  (there is a link on the desktop of OSGeo-Live which will open the url)
> The following changes or additions are for discussion.
